Content descriptions

General Note:
"A Tom Doherty Associates Book."
Summary, etc.:
During a summer in wealthy Cross Cove with her estranged father and his new family, seventeen-year-old Maris Brown learns that her stepsister's boyfriend, Edison, is hiding something and Maris is intrigued.
Maris Brown has been told two things about her destiny: She will fall happily and madly in love; and she could be dead before she turns eighteen. The summer before that fateful birthday, Maris is in the beach town of Cross Cove with her estranged father and his new family-- and the infamous Duvals. Since the youngest member of the Duval family, Edison, is back from college and back in the arms of Maris's new stepsister, her summer looks to be a long string of lazy days on the Duval's lush beach. But Edison is hiding something. Maris should stay as far away from him as possible, but he makes her feel truly alive and she's not willing to give that up. Even if it means a collision course with destiny. -- adapted from jacket

    Maris Brown has a chance to earn back the trust of her mother and father—hopefully. But after being shipped off to spend time with her dad's new family, the New Browns, it takes almost no time at all for Maris to get back into trouble. When she wanders off during a day at the beach, she witnesses a young man being chased, beaten, and almost killed, but she quickly learns that the man, Edison, is actually someone her dad's family knows. The more Maris and Edison get to know about each other, the more the twisted lies they deal in begin to unravel. Why was Edison being chased in the first place? Why is Maris so unwilling to let others get to know her? This lush and slow-burning mystery by Bass (Love and Other Theories, 2014; What's Broken between Us, 2015) is intoxicating, exhilarating, and will enthrall young readers and mystery fans alike. Readers will be hard-pressed to unravel the mystery before the last page. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
